The Lost World

Explore the Jurassic Coast


Curators View

The Jurassic coast has to be one of the most unique seafront experiences in Europe. Millions of years of erosion have resulted in one of the most rugged, beautiful and geologically fascinating walking routes this island has to offer. We here at Vespucci have worked hard to ensure that not only can our adventurers experience the sandy beaches, cliffs, stacks arches, coves, caves and headlands but we’ve also created for you a route that takes in the imposing Purbeck Hills and finishes with you arriving on foot at the ancient Corfe Castle strategically located betwixt the hills. Pick up some fossils, assault the castle, raise your eyebrows at the oldest Nodding Donkey in the UK, catch a breather on one of the beaches along the route. Whatever your thing is, we guarantee you’ll find it in the wild landscape of Dorset.


Adventure Summary

This is an epic Signature Adventure. ‘The Lost World’ certainly doesn’t disappoint. It contains all the elements for a great day out that we look for at Vespucci including the perfect pub near the end. Parts of the walk are exposed and quite remote. Whatever the conditions this will be a memorable experience, but it is important to be properly kitted out and prepared for all eventualities.

When to go?

This walk can be done year round. The summer months are a bit busier, as you would expect. However, the longer days give you more time to enjoy the coast. The winter months can make for more of an adventure, you will also have to set off a little earlier to beat the light!
